Charles den Tex (b. 1952, Camberwell, Australia) has written seven thrillers up to date. All take place against a background of trade and industry, and involve fraud with regard to deals, mergers, and information streams – invariably resulting in murder with the aim of securing financial and political interests. His years of experience in the business world inspired him to write financial thrillers. Because, to quote den Tex, ‘Where there’s money, there’s crime.’ All his novels have been nominated for the Gouden Strop, and no fewer than three have actually won the award. Besides Cel (Cell, 2008), these were De macht van meneer Miller (The Power of Mr Miller, 2006) and Schijn van kans (Chance in Hell, 2002). Den Tex is one of the two most acclaimed thriller authors in the Netherlands. His work is often compared to that of John Grisham, Michael Crichton and Michael Ridpath.
